    The food was incredible. Sometimes chefs get carried away with trying to "update" tapas, but this was just the right mix of tradition and innovation. We particularly liked the cochinillo, tortilla, the churros, and the bacon wrapped dates stuffed with goat cheese and served in an apple puree. But what will forever endear this place to us was the service. I can't say the chairs are at all comfortable, and one of our party with a disability found them impossible. The manager, Nick, did everything he could to accommodate us and succeeded brilliantly. Our server, Antonio, was wonderful, and the Sommelier, Loralee, was extremely helpful and helped us to a really amazing Tempranillo (Beronia Rioja Reserva).

    Overpriced tapas. Selections were limited, not quite the tapas I had in mind comparing from Spain. However, service and ambience were great for Vegas experience.

    The food is amazing, some of the best tapas I’ve ever had. What made dining at the restaurant so unpleasant was the noise level. There were only two in my party but we could barely hear each other without raising our voices.

    Honestly, we were in a scramble and we expected the place to be overbooked or packed. Luckily, we were able to get a reservation and I couldn’t be more grateful. We were seated right at our reservation time and the ambiance was beautiful. The service was impeccable. Antonio’s attention to detail and kindness was very appreciated. We hand the somm (Ms. Lee) help us pick a great bottle of wine. The food was coursed perfectly and the quality and portions were appropriate per pricing. Highly recommend!! And ask for Antonio - he’s an angel of a being.

    Disappointing. When you go out dinner in Vegas you expect high prices in exchange for a great dining experience. Tonight was beyond awful. Maybe the staff was just having a bad night but it felt like they were just rushing us through the assembly line. First, we chose a tapas restaurant to have a nice relaxing dinner. Our plan was to drink some wine, have a few dishes, and work up to the main course. Perhaps we should have recognized the potential problem when the server brought the wrong dish to the table next to us and then 5 minutes later the wrong two tapas to our table. Maybe we should have seen the problem when we got our first dishes before the wine menu. At that point, recognizing something we amiss, I told our server Stefan, could he slow things down, it felt like we were rushing and we wanted a nicely paced meal. Alas a few minutes later our paella came out about 25 minutes after ordering, not the 50 minutes to an hour we were told to expect. We had just got our wine bottle opened. Instead of drinking the wine with dinner, we finished it stewing on our dining debacle. In fairness Stefan felt bad and a nice manager lady came over to apologize and they gave us free churros. If your looking for something quicker than the buffet this maybe a good option choice. Overall we were done in less than an hour, didn’t get to try the tapas we really wanted because the timing of the paella and etc. Again I don’t mind paying a couple hundred for a nice dinner. Honestly if the evening had gone as planned we would have probably spent a couple hundred more and been happier.

    The food was overpriced for Tyr portions. Filet ruined with their sauce. Asparagus too stringy and thin. A red potato was mixed in with yellow ones. Cheese cake was good.

    We haven’t been back here in a few years (you know, a panda and all…) and the food definitely did NOT disappoint!!! Everything was still just as delicious as we remembered, if not even better! The Iberico ham is always a must and the paella was so good! We got the Valencia with chicken and chorizo. The stuffed dates were so good that we ordered two orders! And the grilled octopus was cooked to perfection. We will definitely be back here the next time we’re in town!

    In Vegas there are endless dining options. Don’t waste your time here. Service was slow and lacked any engagement. We had an allergy and when we inquired about certain dishes we just got a yes or a no with no effort to find something else for us to eat. Food was mediocre at best

    Beatrice was our server no she was great! She knew the menu in side out! We ordered some peppers stuffed with mushroom and a red sauce very good! We ordered flank steak and honestly you could not chew it, it was so fatty and we did not finish that dish. We ordered a paella wit chorizo and chicken, it was good but a little bland and we had the spinach with Asian and it was good. This was our second time dining there and we live in Northern Nevada so we only got through Las Vegas on our way to somewhere. They do have a very nice Cava by the glass and a good Tempranillo. My husband ordered a specialty drink with Serrano agave and he enjoyed that So, if you like Spanish food and tapas, give it try!

    This in the Golden State are two restaurants that I always go to when I am in Las Vegas. I am a huge fan of tapas obviously and this restaurant never disappoints, my only negative this time was the service was slow but it turned out to be OK as our conversation was good but still it was slow and we didn’t receive much attention.
